Food and shelter funds
East Feliciana Parish has been awarded federal funds through the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program.
East Feliciana will receive $6,382 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs throughout the parish.
The selection was made by a board chaired by Homeland Security’s FEMA and consists of representatives from American Red Cross, Catholic Charities USA, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, the Jewish Federations of North America, the Salvation Army and United Way Worldwide, a news release said.
The board was charged with distributing funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country, the release said.
A local board will determine how the funds awarded are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area, the release said.
Under the terms of the grant, local agencies chosen to receive funds must be private voluntary nonprofits or units of government; eligible to receive federal funding; have an accounting system; practice nondiscrimination; have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and if agencies are a private voluntary organization, have a voluntary board, according to the release.
Qualifying agencies are urged to apply.
East Feliciana has distributed emergency food and shelter funds previously with several local organizations participating. These agencies were responsible for providing food and other services.
Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for program funds must submit an application by 4 p.m. March 23.
Qualifying organizations can obtain an application by calling Michael Acaldo, Debra Blacher or Lisa Hubble at (225) 383-7837, extension 0, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Agencies also may mail EFSP Local Board Chair, P.O. Box 127, Baton Rouge, 70821.
